Happy Aloha Friday!

I guess waking up early has its advantages!  I am able to get this post up before going to work.. yay! It's been a long week and I'm so ready for the weekend!   I've been working on a lot of projects lately.. getting ready for classes, coming up with new craft fair projects and catching up on my Creative Chemistry class!  I finally got in most of the supplies needed to do the projects in the class, so I spent most of Saturday and Sunday getting inky.

Here's three tags using the Distress Stains.  The first one is using it on the kraft resist paper.  I don't know if you can see, but its actually the Christmas paper since I didn't have the regular one.  Oh well, put another thing on my list of stuff to get.  Anyway, using the stains is so easy!  I'm getting the hang of it slowly and getting better results.

The second tag is a technique stamping with stains.  I distressed the background first, then used my Picket Fence (white) stain to stamp a word background (Stamper Anonymous).  As it dries, it gets more opaque looking.Then I stamped the other stamps by Hero Arts.  Call it luck, but I was quite happy that my Eiffel Tower got such great placement over the blue!  :)

The last tag was done using a marble stain technique.  Again using Picket Fence, I marbled it with Broken China, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive.  Then I added some Vintage Photo and Blue Jeans around the edges.  Couldn't wait to use these new Hero Arts sets by Basic Gray.  Love them!  Now that I look at it, its hard to see the marbling technique in this photo.

Just want to say thanks to my girl Linda for the tags!  you rock!  I gotta go get me some more soon!  Have a great weekend!
